Robert Nagy (robert@) and the city of Budapest played host to this
year's Ports Hackathon. We gathered in the same facility as last year where we
discussed items like licensing issues
and more frequent snapshots packages builds. Oh, and we

It cannot be said enough how useful these events are. They are funded through CD sales and donations, so please help us make more of these events possible.
Here's a short list of some of what got done:
- ajacoutot@: worked on replacing c-client with a license
friendly one (built from latest imap-uw sources), worked on PPC
specific issues with PWlib, brought gkrellm into better shape,
work on hplip (a replacement for print/hpijs),
and the usual updates and fixes.
- espie@: major make improvements
- jasper@: massive updates for gtk 2.12 & gnome 2.20.1,
work on telepathy and various cleanups and other updates.
- landry@: imported notification-daemon and
notification-daemon-xfce (added a MESSAGE when installing
devel/libnotify to tell user to install one of them),
worked on updates for GnuTLS and opencdk,
fixed xfwm4 hangup bug with gtk+2.12,
updated ristretto, orage and xfce4-fsguard,
worked on a port for xfce4-places,
and made some kazehakase tests (port will be candidate to ports-tree as
soon as GnuTLS 2 is commited).
- mbalmer@: busy with some OpenCON organization stuff,
began work decoupling zope release cycle from OpenBSD release cycle
(supporting more than one branch of zope -- Plone will follow) and
took over vax ports snapshots.
- merdely@: Worked out many issues with bacula-2.2.5 (not done
yet), made several improvements to login_ldap (not imported yet),
updates to awesome, dwm, dmenu and other minor updates and took over
alpha ports snapshots.
- robert@: organizing the event, openoffice update and
php configuration file normalization.
- simon@: many, many perl updates
- steven@: libtool replacement, berkeley db 4.6 update,
wxwidgets 2.8 and a few smaller port updates
Everyone else was busy updating existing ports or importing new ones and
were too busy to send me a list of what they did. :)
Thank you, again, to robert@ for organizing such a useful, fun, productive event.
